looking for someone to blame for this story state of affairs played the orange one i think it would have been a good general that's right donald trump started the trend of an ex general and then actual moebius heading up his own ministry when he appointed james mattis on the board of another major defense contractor general dynamics. by the time we got to byron success. the head of the military and major weapons company could end up being the same joke i'll still be. still to come this hour classified documents show kind of it was planning to train chinese soldiers but the brunt of this keep on the pressure from the us story after the break.

motel in iraq the international criminal court says it's not going to proceed and so just before calling the british justice system one of the best in the world this is the way you case proud defense secretary reacts their statement today indicates our efforts to pursue justice were allegations have been founded i'm pleased that work we have done and continue to do in improving the quality and assurances around investigations has been recognized by the international criminal court what i suggest though is reading beyond the 1st 2 lines of what the i.c.c. prosecutor ruled it will only take a few seconds to get to the part that says the office has previously found and today confirmed that there is a reasonable basis to believe members of the british armed forces are responsible for the following.
6:18 pm

6:19 pm
a senior cabinet member bragging about an amazing justice system the judgment is it is a travesty given the actual content of the report which not only says. very reasonable evidence of all sorts of systematic violence against people in the british news hounds during the iraq war but it also makes clear that being thousands of on occasions and not one of those cases has been prosecuted how they can say at the same time when the report can say the same time that there has been no shield to be no cover up what i recommend is that people read the report itself it's an indictment of the british army it's an indictment of the british justice system and it's also in a strange way an indictment of the international criminal court the south however if that's the way things are in the world of international criminal law london tick
6:20 pm
the boxes by launching domestic probes and the i.c.c. couldn't prove any seal doing. or deliberate covering up so the rest is out of the tribunals jurisdiction which only makes you wonder following up on the i.c.c. zone statement does it all mean the iraqi victims will never get justice the u.k. government has repeatedly shown precious little interest in investigating and prosecuting atrocities committed abroad by british troops the prosecutor's decision to close a u.k. inquiry will doubtless fuel perceptions and an ugly double standard in justice one approach to powerful states and quite another for those with less clout the news from the i.c.c. comes as london pushes for a controversial overseas operations bill it's supposed to quote unquote protect british troops in overseas conflicts from big safe says litigation and repeat investigations critics though say it would allow more offenders to escape the law the overseas operations bill will do nothing to address the issue of repeat

investigations of u.k. armed forces personnel list will do is make arifin cases like the death of iraqi national even more difficult to prosecute. the u.k. would also be violating numerous human rights treaties by not ensuring abuses are properly dealt with but even without the bill as we now know the international criminal court has pulled the brakes on probing the british military earlier when the court was going to look into potential abuses by the us troops in war zones washington simply paid back by sanctioning senior staff members at the i.c.c. what if after that the tribunal just didn't want to go too far with investigating uncle sam's number one ally in iraq well there's no way of knowing. senior u.s. politicians are demanding action after a member of the intelligence committee was targeted by suspected chinese spying
6:22 pm
this comes as u.s. intel chiefs have identified beijing as washington's number one threat as the if has more. so trumps out and the russia gate thing is slamming shut behind him because there's a new scare story in town china you know it doesn't take long to dig up dirt in a town like washington q us democrat representative eric swalwell until now moves through well this crist so far the evidence is on contradicted that the president used taxpayer dollars to ask the ukrainians to help him choose an election this time around it's his links to a suspected chinese spy who is in the stink not least because and this is awkward he sits on the house intelligence committee not the only shall be removed from the intel he should be removed from congress as well yes house minority leader kevin mccarthy there spotted an opportunity to claim his 1st victim so the background in
6:23 pm
a nutshell swalwell hod a chinese national called thang fag in his early political career and this person quickly started raising suspicions within the intel community he got rid of her but his recently refused to answer whether he slept with her which probably means yes but before we burn mr swalwell at the stake at sea we're out might have to join him once this chinese witch hunt really gains momentum it's got a feel for mitch mcconnell he survived the title most good image but can he now survive the fact that is wife secretary of transportation elaine chao is from one of china's most prominent political families that would be one hell of a honey trap and you and jean shall have served on the board of the holding company for china's teach to build in a state owned enterprise that makes chips for the chinese military. is also on the board at the bank of china and top lender to the ship builder remember also the

could communicate one thing to the american people it is that the people's republic of china poses the greatest threats to america today and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide since world war 2 what they might find is that there aren't many politicians left who don't have links to this new enemy because they used to be friends we is getting hard to keep up one kind of scrap military exercises with china last year it was doing washington's bidding that's according at least the classified documents revealed by the media trudeau government plan to invite chinese troops to train and just months off the 2 canadians were arrested in china a chinese military contingent was expected to study cold weather military tactics classified documents obtained by rebel news show the event was cancelled at the request of the u.s. state department. we recall for example the back in december department of national

point of view i'm not surprised at all for the pressure of us on canada in fact it's not just canada even the u.k. australia new sea than they always say if pressure these countries are no longer acting like an independent countries with independent foreign policies from the actions of prince trudeau canada is clearly much more inclined towards the pressure. from the united states i'm not surprised that they're that the united states is putting pressure on canada. regards to its relations with china and someone decided that it was not in canada's interest and that is the more unusual part is how that the military if these reports are correct managed to supersede the prime minister that is perhaps the more interesting question to ask and of course i don't have any answers for that who does but this is it looks like
